Check Availability Website

The Okeltor Boathouse is built within the walls of an 18th-century granary with a slipway and quay on the river Tamar. It was once a very busy thoroughfare serving the mines, quarries, brickworks, lime kilns and market gardens. Now you will find a very peaceful spot with a wide range of wildlife. Also close to Dartmoor National Park.

The accommodation has been architect designed to reflect the industrial heritage and has a fully glazed ridge creating an exceptionally light and spacious feel. There is a lounge, dining and kitchen area of 6.5 x 5 metres with a corner toilet/shower room. The windows overlook the river and glazed double doors go onto a south facing balcony.

Sleeping 2-4, the main bedroom has a 5ft double bed, there is a small bunk bedroom with windows to the rear garden. The lounge has a double futon for flexibility if required.

No smoking, no pets and it is not suitable for young children due to an unprotected quay, fast flowing water, a pond, and long drops from upper garden.

Prices start from £525 in low season for a week. Saturday to Saturday let. Please enquire if you want any variations on this, weekend break or different start date.
